Which is a better link expenditure?

 9:42 pm on Aug 21, 2009 (gmt 0)

$700 for a link placed on an on-topic PR6 page with 270 outbound links, or $275 for a link on an on-topic PR5 page with 23 outbound links? Both sites are .orgs, links come with memberships. Both memberships offer a certain limited amount of exposure to new clients.

Neither.. save your money and increase your profit. The search engines warn against buying links. Spend that $ somewhere else where it will benefit you better such as content development.

Well, it's not really buying links per se...it's buying memberships to the non-profit organizations, and the links are just part of the membership. Since they are well regarded non-profits with a purpose other than selling links Google really wouldn;t have any way of knowing would it?

The second option is better.

In my view 2nd option is the best option..

I agree, the second option is better. All other things being equal, you're only getting 1/45 of that PR6 and 1/4.6 of the PR5 and less than half the cost.

Google could well discount links on these pages if they think that they have been "paid" for.
